UMass Boston


Whether you have firmly set your sights on a medical career, or are still making up your mind, we welcome your interest and inquiries. A career in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, or allied health professions all offer challenges, variety, and flexibility.

The links you will find in this section will help you get started with important information necessary for premedical students; premedical advising services, program requirements, the medical school application process, and a suggested timetable. We encourage you to seek as much factual information as you can as early as possible in your academic career. Remember, the premedical advisor is your best resource.

Don't worry; you don't need to make a firm decision before seeking advising help. One of our most important jobs is helping people make realistic, informed choices about pursuing a career in any of the health or allied health professions. Once you have made a decision to become a premedical student, we will ask you to interact regularly with the premedical advisor throughout your undergraduate years. Advising is done in person, and via telephone and email.
